Air Travel and Climate – Offsetting as a contribution to climate protection with added value to people worldwide

atmosfair is a German non-profit organization that actively contributes to CO₂ mitigation by promoting, developing and financing renewable energies in over 15 countries worldwide. They rely exclusively on voluntary climate payments from private individuals and businesses.  Aiming to decarbonize the world economy, they have designed software tools and consulting services to assist businesses in executing their climate policies, with a particular focus on business travel.  Their work ethic is based on the following principle: only compensate what can’t be avoided or reduced. This approach constitutes the foundation for all our partnerships, ensuring not only climate integrity but also cost efficiency.

Airline passengers can make a voluntary climate protection payment based on the amount of emissions they create; atmosfair uses these contributions to develop renewable energies in countries where they hardly exist, above all in developing countries. In this way, atmosfair saves CO₂ that would otherwise be created by fossil fuels in these countries. Meanwhile, local people profit since often for the first time, they gain access to clean energy available around the clock, which is a must for education and creating equal opportunities.
